And, who doesn't like sassing back at the teacher?! *Open to 1 or more co-teachers for some live XP Programming! I learn a lot watching people code. I try to inject tips when appropriate. So, let's learn! The session will start based on a quick survey (WPF / ASP.NET / WCF / WF / Silverlight / Phone 7 / MVC, etc.). We'll begin coding and I'll describe the decisions I'm making. Everyone else will yell constructive tips. At various intervals, we will switch it up for another survey. I will have a number of libraries ready to work with (Enterprise Library 5, Caliburn, TDD frameworks like xUnit, NUnit, and Moq, etc.) *Open to suggestions.Copyright ©2010-2022, My Conference Eventsuuid:1784f45d-2de1-401d-aff4-ec3981aab1fb;id=374057AJAX with jQuery2010-09-09T16:03:03-07:002010-09-09T16:03:03-07:00In this session, you'll learn various techniques for adding AJAX to your site using jQuery.

Visual Studio and WebMatrix with both be demonstrated.
1) We will cover how to separate your web application by developing separate "Areas" (logical components of the application) and take that a step further by reaching into undocumented "futures" capabilities by splitting our "Areas" into completely separate projects without using 3rd party libraries ("MVC Contrib").
2) We will tackle how to support multiple domains with the same MVC application, including sub-domains.

This is invaluable to fix bugs that only happen while the application is running. .NET TraceListeners will be discussed in detail along with how to write your own custom TraceListeners. I will also discuss and provide code for my centralized exception/ event logging system that allows applications at customer sites or on multiple servers to log to central database. Developers or technical support personal can then view these entries via an ASP.NET web site.Copyright ©2010-2022, My Conference Eventsuuid:1784f45d-2de1-401d-aff4-ec3981aab1fb;id=374064Building Composite Application Services with Windows Server AppFabric2010-09-09T11:48:19-07:002010-09-09T11:48:19-07:00Windows Server AppFabric extends the core capabilities of IIS by providing many of the cloud benefits on-premise including elastic scale and robust hosting capabilities.

It was class-based, it was imperative, and it was component-oriented. For many years, the classic object-oriented design principles served class library designers well. But C# is no longer a purely object oriented language. It is no longer an imperative, class-based, component oriented discipline. It is also a generic, declarative, functional discipline. I will reexamine the object-oriented principles and introduce new principles. I will then introduce new refactorings as we move toward a more declarative, fluent world.Copyright ©2010-2022, My Conference Eventsuuid:1784f45d-2de1-401d-aff4-ec3981aab1fb;id=374066Continuous Integration with Hudson2010-09-13T15:01:08-07:002010-09-13T15:01:08-07:00Use Hudson to help provide your team with continuous feedback on the state of your project.

With WCF Data Services, a database can be surfaced to a service as a REST-style resource collection that is addressable with natural URIs and can be interacted with using the usual HTTP verbs: GET, POST, PUT, and DELETE. This session will describe OData (the Open Data Protocol), the benefits it conveys, and its uses. Then we will set up a data service using an existing database that developers would then access rather than accessing the database directly.Copyright ©2010-2022, My Conference Eventsuuid:1784f45d-2de1-401d-aff4-ec3981aab1fb;id=374098Restful services with WCF2010-09-16T10:38:44-07:002010-09-16T10:38:44-07:00Creating restful services via WCF and the WCF toolkitCopyright ©2010-2022, My Conference Eventsuuid:1784f45d-2de1-401d-aff4-ec3981aab1fb;id=374099Ruby-Processing Graphics Playground2010-08-19T05:56:52-07:002010-08-19T05:56:52-07:00Ruby-Processing is a Ruby wrapper around Processing, a simple language that lets you create images and animations. We'll demonstrate some of Processing's basic features like drawing, manipulating image files, and interacting with the mouse.
